Well even if you say 7.4p in early April to just 5.9p to buy now that is a 20% fall and certainly overdone in my view for a company set to grow earnings by 50% and on a historic p/e of just 8.9 A good Agm statement should send this back up again hopefully.

I don't think you can realistically count the drop from the brief spell at 8p more fair to call it from the 7p recent average which makes the drop much closer to the average of 10%ish. Nothing to worry about IMO.

me too ! Does anyone know why it has been falling off so much ? Many small cap stocks have been falling off by 10% but this is down by over 25% from its highs now and the growth is still there with no negative news or vibes from the company.

Absolutely! That's why I've snaffled an additional 200k since Friday. Market permitting & a fair wind should have us circa 10p by year end. spud

I have just noticed that over 100m shares are owned by private investors, is this correct?

And on the flip side riv: 'The new outdoor payment terminal is gaining acceptance and significant orders for it are expected this year. The new EFT platform is now on pilot with a major supermarket....' spud

Looks interesting overall, but this comment will have given investors second thoughts: "The high level of project work in 2013 may not be repeated in 2014" Together with the comment that: "Significant change is still underway in the petrol and convenience store markets" is both an opportunity and a challenge.

Maybe it's the comment about the lower volume of contract work that has caused the limited impact Anyway I am a first time buyer today

I think then we are all agreed a good set of results and very positive, a solid foundation to continue to build upon. Personally I'm not at all surprise the share prise has only risen a fraction, remember the old saying 'buy on the rumour and sell on the news.'

http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2014/article/61743580 Results good - as expected - with the promise of further progress as the recent acquisitions are exploited to full potential. I see the recognition of some deferred tax credits has begun. Initial market reaction is always hard to predict but when any dust settles I feel it should be a penny or two higher within weeks.

loganair - The company cannot currently pay a dividend under UK company law as it has no distributable reserves. This can be corrected by getting court sanction to write off accumulated losses against capital reserves, usually the share premium account. However, I think an early move in this direction is unlikely as there are nearly £16m of intangibles, mainly goodwill, padding out the balance sheet. Although a significant intangible element is not in itself unusual (or worrying) in a company of this type, the ratio of intangibles to reserves is rather high and would advisably be reduced somewhat over time imho. That said, the ratio of intangibles to their supporting profits is a more important factor in the short term. A year or two of good cash generation would see things moving usefully in the right direction. A 'more likely than not' foreseeable profit situation could boost the balance sheet by recognition of tax credits. These enable tax on current profits to be offset against credits created from past losses. That would perhaps be an appropriate time to consider writing off the P&L deficit and commencing a sustainably progressive dividend policy. Each step along this road should, as you suggest, lead to a few pennies on the share price

I'm wondering considering Universe is vertually debt free and making a good profit when we're likely to see them paying a small dividend for all us long long suffering share holders??? I think when Universe starts paying a dividend again we'll see a sudden jump of a couple of pennies on to the share price.

Not usually on a Friday, so I would pencil in 10th April as a a more likely guess.
